My boss hooked me up with a
wonderful surprise. I have been a great fan, or should I say, admirer of the
guy, for since I can remember watching him talk on TV. I specifically was
attracted with his intellect and personality. Of course, aside from the fact
that he is incredibly cute. So we went to his apartment in Malate, Manila for a
scheduled painting delivery. We entered an old building with huge replicas of
some famous European arts in the hallway. I thought it was damn swanky. So as
we entered his unit, I was in awe. The interior of his house was somewhat
eclectic yet classy and comfy. He was generous enough to offer us drinks and
accommodated us with a little talk. He said, he chose my art work "Bulong"
because it looked like his wife. True enough, for some strange coincidence, the
painting I did that was just a product of my imagination does have a
resemblance to her wife. I had Goosebumps. So he went and entertained while I
was just starring at his face the whole time. I have a big crush on him ever
since and I am just in pure disbelief that it is happening. Carlos P. Celdran
now owns one of the pieces in my Presensiya Exhibit. A piece that took me the
longest time to make. I am happy and proud that a "Carlos Celdran"
owns a Katagiri.
